Lazy Pants McGee

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots β€˜N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Murphy has a lot of nicknames:

  • Turd Ferguson (or just “Turd” for short)
  • Gremlin
  • Piranha
  • Brickhead (Mal calls him this)
  • Lazy Pants McGee

Today, he’s been Lazy Pants McGee all day long.


Murphy even slept while sitting in my lap. Well, sorta.



Mid-morning, my stomach started to grumble, so I made half of wrap with Barney Butter and a sprinkle of ground flaxseed meal spread inside. It kept my stomach quiet until lunchtime.



For lunch, I enjoyed an arugula salad with Buffalo Tofu and Atheno’s tomato & basil feta crumbles on top. I’m not going to lie, it was quite amazing.


I also had a container of French vanilla yogurt.


And, of course, I enjoyed a few Cherry-Dark Chocolate Cookies after lunch. I couldn’t help myself! Plus, Cookie Friday is less than 24 hours away. I guess I’m just practicing for game day! πŸ˜‰

Time to take the pug for his long walk of the day!

See ya! 😎



  1. It must be hard being Murphy! πŸ™‚ He’s cute. I love the photos. I send them to my BF who wants us to get a pug. πŸ™‚

  2. WOW! I just came across your FANTASTIC blog. Your story rings true to mine…thanks for all the motivation! Now, I’ll be sure to check in each & every day! πŸ™‚

  3. I call my basset Shorty McGee. It’s funny how many nicknames are easily made up when your pet can’t protest them!

  4. Murphy looks like a sea lion sleeping on your lap like that!…and that salad does look really good. I think I’ll be whipping one up for lunch myself!

  5. Aw! Poor Murphy is zonked! That is my Rascal every day! He also likes to sleep on my lap like he’s a 5 lb. Yorky instead of a 19 lb. Daschund. His nicknames are:
    1. Little Man
    2. Stink Monkey
    3. Grump Bucket

  6. Our dog is named Shea, and we come up with clever nick names for her all the time.
    When she breaks up fights between the cats, she’s “Shea-rif”
    When she wakes me up in the morning its a “Shea-ke up”
    When we’re singing a Steve Perry song to her its “Oh Shea-dog, you’re all alone…”
    We also refer to her as Bluppy (she’s a black puppy) or Blog (black dog, she’s older now)
    Murphy aka Lazy Pants McGee is adorable!

  7. I love that feta cheese w/ 1 can black beans, 1 can shoepeg corn, 1/4c sugar, 1/4c EVOO, 1/4c cider vinegar, diced scallions all mixed together and served w/ Scoops. The best dip in the whole wide world. It’s even better the next day.

  8. What do flaxseeds taste like? I saw them preground at the shops today – is that how you buy them? Any help much appreciated πŸ™‚
